Nineties kids, rejoice: Dunkel Dare, a collaboration between beloved Double Dare host and area native Marc Summers, Philly brewers, and Frankford Hall, is back in all its messy, boozy glory on June 21st and 22nd.
Frankford Hall, which has hosted Summers and his slime-soaked games in the past, will be transformed into a messy, fun-filled “Slopstacle Course.” (If you don’t know what Double Dare is, stop reading this and go Snapchat a fidget spinner or something. If you want a refresher that will no doubt bring back tender childhood memories, check out this excellent oral history of the show.)
Four teams, each made up of brewmasters (from Yards, Victory, Troeg’s, and Paulaner), local celebs, and a lucky guest from the crowd, will take on pop culture and beer trivia and physical challenges posed by Summers in the competition.
And one lucky Frankford Hall guest each night will have the chance to win a spot in the Slime Zone — that is, a front-row seat — for the competition for themselves and seven friends: leading up to the event, the beer hall will display Double Dare’s iconic nose prop, the giant schnozz that countless kids fished around in for flags covered in green goop back in the day. Take a selfie with the nose and post it to social media with the hashtag #slimeme to enter the contest. In addition to VIP access to the front row, the winner will be moved to the front of the line, have a personal server assist for the evening, and get a free poncho.
The first two rounds will take place on June 21st, with the championship final round on June 22nd. Doors open at 4 p.m., with games starting at 7 p.m. and going until 11 p.m. There’s a $5 cover (food and drink is pay-as-you-go) and entry is first come, first served, so get there early if you want to be a part of the fun.
